hit at a stoplight... happy thanksgiving.

Some old granny just rear ended me at a stop light... happy thanksgiving......

The damage is superficial, but they tried to leave before i could inventory the damage so i had to call the police. Lame.

Today was just weird. I was cruising around out by St Charles and Geneva and people were always riding my ass. A lot of douchery in general...
Sorry about your misfortune.

Thats an everyday occurrence for me, random drivers ride my ass and I'm doing about +20 on the speedlimit on the freeway!

Did you or the police get their information (plate number, etc.)?

I lived in the OC so I know what that's all about. It's pretty much the same here on the major highways near Chicago. But rural areas on the other hand, seems a little uncharacteristic for the area.

It luckily was only superficial. I was in a left hand turn lane waiting for the light, and the old lady decided she wanted to turn left as well... from the center lane.

She came blazing in at top speed (fortunately for me that was about 2mph) and hit my back left bumper at an angle. I heard a creak and felt the car shake, so I got out to take a look. She could barely see over the steering wheel and they asked me if they could back up. I told them yes, so I could see the damage.

After backing up they drove the rest of the way to the crossing line in the center lane (no one was ahead of us at this point). When I asked where they are going, they said that they are turning left, and they hadn't hit me. I pulled out my cell phone and told them I was taking a picture of their plate (I did) and would report them as a hit and run.

They still insisted they had not hit me, so I called the police and made good on my offer. Once they saw me calling they stopped and put their hazards on.

Side note: My phone happened to be paired to my car, and I didn't turn it off so when I called the police they couldn't hear me because I was outside of the car.. DOH!

The police filed the report and sent us on our way. It's just a small scratch on my bumper that really only I will notice, but I am taking it in to my body work guy to see if there are any busted clips or non visible damage. I actually think it caught a piece of my exhaust so there was minimal external damage.

I have the same car as you and if granny I'd be absolutely furious. Best of luck fixing it hope insurance covers it.

I rarely if ever use them so not sure.
I try to avoid using them when the car is still clean.
